Hahahha almost certainly!

And just think with today's technology you can go out there with an MP3 Player and battery operated Bose sound system.

We had a crummy tape deck boom box that took 6 D batteries that would hardly last the night and would sometimes eat the tape right in the middle of Dark Star.

But what glorious times they were.

"sometimes eat the tape right in the middle of Dark Star"

hahahahah

Awesome!!

P.S. I still use a boom box that takes 6 D batteries, only the CD player & radio still work, tape part broke long ago -it is a Sony and about 19 years old.

Impressive... although more bonus points are awarded for functional tape decks!

My 2001 Jeep has a tape (still working) and CD unit. I have 2 tapes left after all the years - 11/4/73 - Old and in The Way and The Clash's first record.

The tape eating was a mess... out in the woods, out of our minds and sitting there with a magnetic rat nest just praying we get it back together and hear them go into St. Stephen.
